Hello, I'm Henry.  

Welcome aboard my blog's home. 

If you come along with me, you'll become acquainted with my motley mates and faithful crew:

Experiences, Sightings, Observations, Impressions, Ideas, Reflections, Remembrances, Insights and Commentary.

They, after all, have accompanied me for as long as I can recall. Their tenure has helped me turn my tiller, fill my sails, and transport me over seas to distant lands. Maybe if you take the time to get to know them, a few will do the same for you.

It’s 4:45 a.m on January 31, 2018 and Mystique, Lainie and I wake afloat near Miami, Florida. Pulled out of a deep sleep, we observe a full waning moon shining brightly over the western sky of Biscayne Bay. It reminds us it’s nearing show time.  A blue moon?

Time for a whitish, then yellowish orb to turn greyish then blood reddish as Earth’s full moon goes into a lunar eclipse. All this moon coloration and setting accompanied with an eastern sunrise?

I could sense all our invisible forces at play: gravity, tidal current, waves, sun and moon light rays, wind, air, heart, lungs, thoughts, feelings! All these energies tugged and moved around us while the pull of our waking to their wonders brought us our daily cup of renewed awareness and vitality.

 Gil’s motorsailor  Stella Maria  turns sideways to  Mystique  as the lunar tidal current influences her differently despite a northerly breeeze.

The blue moon‘s irregularity made today unique, but its display was anything but spectacular.
